Happy Thanksgiving to all
For me right now Humira is doing well, I worry about long term use of any drug.
I was on Imuran, Pentasa and Entocort and they were not doing the job. Plus my B12 levels were dropping due to the Imuran so it was causing me problems. I even had a numb toe (due to low b12) which is now returning to normal since stopping my other meds and going on Humira.
With any drug there are risks, for me keeping my disease less active is worth the risk. Everyone has to decide that for themselves.
